Radio Marrakesh: The Poor Man’s Podcast

Because I don't really have time to do a pod-cast, or any kind of internet radio show (and frankly if I were going to play music I probably wouldn't find much in a pod-safe directory). So I'm going to continue blogging as I would otherwise, and offer you a playlist, as a sort of Intellectual Radio Program. All the thought without any of the pesky listening.

We'll call it Radio Marrakesh, because I think that's what I'm going to call any radio show or radio-like show that I do. So here's the playlist. It's a sort of angry political (in my mind) bunch of songs (with a little humor), that I've been listening to for a while. Powerful songs, which have a coherent political statement but also have great emotional power. I don't quite have the order worked out, so don't blame me there.
